Central Subway work kicks off in 2010

With the New Year will come work on the Central Subway project.

“The Central Subway Project will soon begin construction for relocating utilities for the future Moscone Station and Subway Tunnel Portal on Fourth Street between Howard and Bryant streets.  The relocation construction will be performed from January 2010 to approximately June 2011.  The work will be done in phases to avoid service interruptions and to provide necessary space for new utilities,” according to an announcement.

What this means: Work area will be on Fourth Street from Howard Street to Bryant Street (including side streets) and on Clementina Street from Fourth Street to Fifth Street.

Two traffic lanes on Fourth Street will be maintained at all times during the construction period.

Parking spaces will be temporarily closed as needed during construction. Please see construction signs for exact locations and times.

Noise, dust and traffic delays from construction activities will be mitigated as much as possible.

Not everyone is delighted by the planned subway route and its impacts.
